The app is really good for being able to access important news whenever you want, but it’s like using a first generation app.
This is by far the worst news/magazine app I’ve seen in both style and function. It’s barely usable and a complete eyesore. I recommend getting the print publication for sure. The website is also very good, even on mobile web. But don’t even bother with this mobile app unless they fix it someday.
Love the content but this app is woefully out of date.
Overall it is pointless to get the app. They ask you to go to their website all the time and the pages never want to load. Don’t wast your time
Love the website on my computer, so the app is important for my phone... but it needs an update for the new generation of iPhones. While they’re at it, what I need is a smooth way to search for articles, with adds not in the search results (keep them in the articles please).
Reason is an excellent source of credible information. It’s truly a shame that their organization evidently commits no funding to their mobile platform. Their readers and supporters deserve better.
The app doesn’t display article preview photos, can’t interpret an apostrophe without losing its mind, and is letterboxed to fit a screen format that was standard two years ago.
I guess the free market does not pertain to programmers and app developers or if it does, Reason just doesn’t pay. This app is pathetic and just drives you to their site for any decent article. Reason should be embarrassed. This app is the equivalent of a libertarian presidential run-underperforming and unimpressive in delivering quality content.
An easy way to access articles, for sure. However, links in articles don’t work (this includes both links to full versions of the articles being read and links to external sources). You click them and get no response.
The app is designed to drive traffic to Reason’s web site, and with unnecessary clicks.
